are HC 12aź, HC-22aź and HC 502aź?
which is patented, HC-22aź and HC 502aź are hydrocarbon blends
that were developed as effective replacements for non ozone
depleting refrigerant substitutes for CFC R12, HCFC R22, and CFC
R502. Our products have zero ozone-depletion-potential (ODP) and
negligible global warming potential (GWP) which make them the most
environmentally safe refrigerants available today.
HC 12aź, HC-22aź and HC 502aź Require Retrofitting?
The use of our refrigerants to replace CFC's or HCFC's requires
minimal retrofitting as outlined by the Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA). All other applications require no retrofitting. Our
hydrocarbon refrigerants are completely compatible with all the
materials and oils (mineral or synthetic) in all systems. The cost
and environmental savings can be substantial!
HC 12aź, HC-22aź and HC 502aź Safe?
Very safe! They are non-toxic, earth friendly compounds. As
hydrocarbon blends, they are flammable but the risk of ignition
has been shown to be extremely low. Even so, a distinguishing odor
has been added to our products so that any leak in a refrigeration
system can be readily detected and corrected.
Efficient are HC 12aź, HC-22aź and HC 502aź?
Extremely. They are up to 30% more efficient than the refrigerants
they are designed to replace and even more efficient than CFC R12.
This means less wear on your refrigeration system, substantial
energy savings, and reduced fuel and energy costs. Our
refrigerants are competitively priced when compared to the weight
equivalency of the refrigerants they are designed to replace.
are HC 12aź, HC-22aź and HC 502aź Installed?
There are no new procedures to learn. The same gauges are used,
and refrigeration systems are charged in the same manner used with
the refrigerant being replaced. Our refrigerants are completely
compatible with the synthetic oil used with HFC R134a and the
organic oils used with CFC R12, HCFC R22, and CFC R502 systems. No
flushing or oil changes required.
HC 12aź, HC-22aź and HC 502aź Offer Other Benefits?
*Hydrocarbon refrigerants do not become caustic if contaminated
with moisture or oxygen.
*Hydrocarbon refrigerants are better conductors of heat and
require less engine horsepower or electrical draw to compress,
which reduces compressor wear and extends compressor life.
*Hydrocarbon refrigerants extend compressor winding life, produce
negligible copper plating and coke formation on valves, and
extremely low chemical breakdown.
HC 12aź, HC-22aź and HC 502aź Have EPA Approval?
HC 12aź is acceptable as a substitute for CFC R12 in retrofitted
and new industrial process refrigeration systems. The primary
market for our refrigerant products, however, is as second
generation replacements for HFC R134a and all other substitutes
for CFC R12 that are non ozone depleting.
EPA's Final Rule published April
1, 1994 states:
"In this final rule, the Agency
has determined that second generation replacements, if they are
non-ozone depleting and are replacing non ozone depleting first
generation alternatives, are exempt from reporting requirements
under Section 612."
HC 12aź, HC-22aź and HC 502aź Guaranteed?
They are guaranteed to perform as efficient refrigerants in all
systems and not to harm refrigeration system components or other
related mechanical equipment if' installed and used according to
HC 12aź, HC-22aź and HC 502aź Organic?
Yes. They are blends of naturally occurring substances distilled
from crude oil. HC-12aź, HC 22aź, and HC-502aź are manufactured
without undergoing a complex chemical transformation. The
production of our products generates no toxic by products or
harmful pollutants of any kind.
